Taking Screenshots of the Emulator or Handset

One feature that can be particularly useful for debugging both handsets and emulators is the ability to take screenshots of the current screen (see Figure 2.7).

Take a Screen Capture

The screenshot feature is particularly useful when used with true handsets. To take a screen capture, follow these steps:

1. In DDMS, choose the device (or emulator) you want a screenshot of.

2. On that device or emulator, make sure you have the screen you want. Navigate to it, if necessary.

3. Choose the multicolored square picture icon ( ) to take a screen capture. This launches a capture screen dialog.

4. Within the capture screen, click Save to save the screenshot to your local hard ▲ drive.
